In this series, we get to know the members of our diverse community, from their shopping list staples to their dream deliveries. First up: shopper appreciation mastermind, Christie P.

When I was still resolving issues for members on the Experience team, we received a call from a member who needed 500 artichokes in 48 hours. Luckily, I had some shopper friends in that area. We banded together, several phone calls and three hatchbacks later, we delivered on time!
